( Bills' Sammy Watkins, EJ Manuel still developing trust
This quote from Sammy Watkins - "I could be wide open, and if he don't feel it, or if I run it a different type of way, he won't throw the ball" - is sure to be taken out of context, and then overreacted to, somewhere. Be prepared.

( For Fred Jackson, age doesn't matter
Fred Jackson may be 33 years old, but his career workload better resembles that of a 25-year-old starting running back. This is a fun read.

( Seven things to watch before training camp
This league-wide article mentions a potential Marcell Dareus suspension as something to keep an eye out for before camps start.

( Marcell Dareus headed toward pretrial intervention program for spice-possession charge
Rod Giddens, attorney for Dareus, offers a few more hints at the pre-trial intervention program that Dareus is expected to be accepted into. It does not sound like the program will interfere with Dareus' ability to participate in training camp next month.

'90s week

( Jan. 12, 1992: AFC Championship vs. Broncos
Carlton. Bailey.

( Jan. 15, 1994: Coldest Home Game vs. Raiders
My dad was at this game. We were living in Pennsylvania at the time, I was only seven years old, and was therefore not permitted to make the trip up. Probably for the best; I was a skinny little dude. Bill Brooks was awesome in this game.

( Jan. 23, 1994: AFC Championship vs. Chiefs
The Bills crushed Joe Montana and the Chiefs, 30-13, to advance to their fourth straight Super Bowl. Thurman Thomas (186 rushing yards, three touchdowns) did most of the heavy lifting.
